Karren Brady rescued by big pants on red carpet …

There are times when we all need a bit of … shall we say trickery … or an illusion … a bit of smoke and mirrors … or to be blunt scarily big pants! Our grannies knew these tricks but called them foundation garments. It’s a lingerie art form that seems to have been lost for years and is now making a big comeback.

‘Only with the right foundation can we get the right outer effect’

says Karren whose Mum flagged up the importance of under garments that ‘work’ for you.

Good foundation garments are Boudoir’s top ‘illusion’ tip.

If you want to look svelte and chic then invest in good under garments rather than just focussing on the new frock. They can help you create a smooth, sleek shape and they don’t have to be ugly or painfully uncomfortable.

Our grannies knew these secrets, but then mothers started burning their bras and these tips just got lost by those in search of liberation.

The pressure to look good instantly is breathing new life into foundation garments. The new shapewear from Triumph creates the perfect no lumps, no bumps illusion.

You don’t have to stop breathing – you can just trust Triumph to do the work underneath to make what’s on top flow and flatter – the lovely new Lace Sensation Bodydress in black and the gorgeous Stylish Sensation Bodydress in pink.
